England Women name their Talent Development Group for the forthcoming season and that includes a very special talent from Percy Park RFC
England Head Coach Jo Yapp said: “Following our tour in the summer, we have seen a number of U20 players selected into the Red Roses squad ahead of the Quilter Internationals.
“This provides an opportunity for new players who have come through the pathway. This season we have seen a number of good performances at club level in the Tyrrells Premier 15s, which is proving a great platform for player development.
“We are now looking forward to building towards the three games later in the season.”
As a result of a number of players progressing into the U20 from the Talent Development Group (TDG), seven additional players have been recruited to the TDG. AND that includes our own Orla McCallion from Percy Park RFC.
Orla has already represented England at Touch Rugby and is well on her way to being in that special category of representing her home country at both Touch and within the 15 a side game…..Orla is indeed a very special talent and that is something to be celebrated…you never know we might see a framed England shirt taking pride of place in our 1872 Sports bar…..now that really would be great to see, especially as Orlas’s dad is of the green variety!!
